7-8 Year Old Coach Pitch Hard Ball Division

Updated Tuesday June 4, 2019 by WD Baseball.

Rookie League- This division is for 7-8 year olds (Going into 2nd & 3rd grades). An official little league hard ball is used and some rules of play are adjusted to better prepare these players for the next step of 9-10 year old player pitch baseball. Coaches do the pitching in this league. 

Practice dates and times for this division vary and are dependent on the coach and availability of fields.  Practice times will be determined and communicated by your team's coach and will not be known until early April. 

Game nights are tentatively planned to be on Wednesdays for the 2019 Season starting in Late May through July.  The published schedule goes to the end of July with the purpose of getting in as many games as possible.  If inclement weather cancels a game, an attempt to reschedule the game at the end of the season will be made, but is not guaranteed and is dependent on teams being able to field enough players.

8 Year olds (2nd graders) who are interested in being evaluated to play up in this division should register for the 9-10 year old division.  If player is not selected for this division after being evaluated they will be placed in the 7-8 Division.  Please note: 1st priority for placement in the 9-10 year old division is for kids currently in 3rd or 4th grade, so there is no guarantee that any 2nd graders will be able to move up regardless of how they do in evaluation.  

Evaluating for 9-10 In-House Division: 

If you plan to have your 8 year old evaluated for play in the 9-10 division, please register him in the 9-10 division.  If he is not chosen for the 9-10 division after evaluations, they will be placed in the 8 year old Rookie division.
